LA-CO Industries is a global manufacturing company specializing in the manufacturing of industrial hand-held markers, plumbing chemicals, and livestock identification products. The company designs and manufactures high quality, performance-based products under three thriving brands: Markal, LA-CO and All Weather.
LA-CO Industries contacted Interpro in 2011 after having initially worked with a translation firm who failed to meet their expectations concerning quality, responsiveness, and overall client service. Interpro was subsequently selected to partner with LA-CO on a wide variety of localization initiatives beginning in the Fall of 2011.
Since establishing our partnership, Interpro has collaborated with LA-CO Industries for the translation of brochures, press releases, marketing materials, and sales collateral sheets – across the company’s brands – into French (both European and Canadian), German, Italian, Portuguese (Brazilian), and Spanish, as well as into other languages. In addition to the translation of documentation projects, Interpro worked closely with LA-CO's web development partner, Americaneagle.com, to coordinate and translate the newly redesigned website for the Markal brand- www.markal.com into French, German, Italian, and Spanish.
The new Markal website project included extensive file preparation and engineering, translation, editing, proofreading and on-line quality assurance services. The localization of the website involved working with numerous types of file formats and components deployed in the new global website's Content Management System. In addition to static page content, the website localization project involved translating database-driven product descriptions for all Markal products. Interpro's professional localization efforts and project management expertise resulted in a standout multilingual website.
Interpro looks forward to building upon the successful project execution of the past year in order to solidify its partnership with LA-CO Industries as they continue to increase revenue, market share, and client satisfaction across the globe.
We hired Interpro in preparation for our multi-lingual global website launch. Interpro’s professionalism and project management style allowed our team to focus on other critical areas with the full knowledge that they would keep me updated and discuss any concerns. Their great communication style and attention to detail allowed us to deliver a 5-language interactive website on-time and with great accuracy. Our in-country reviewers are consistently impressed with their industry-focused translation efforts and while there are some changes Interpro works with us to find the right message for our markets.
